  • To Alice’s family

    I will always remember her. My mother, Ethel Norris, worked with Alice for years at
    Food Fair/Pantry Pride. People always thought they were sisters, because they wore
    their hair the same way. Always remember it being a family atmosphere especially
    when we would go to the store. Please know that you Joe and your family are in my
    thoughts and prayers.

  • Joe and Family,
    We were so saddened to hear about your loss. Alice was a wonderful person and she will be missed by all. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
